Jesabel is a woman that wanted nothing more than for her relationship to work. No matter how many times she caught Henry cheating, in the back of her mind, she always thought he would get it together. Until one day, Henry does something that Jesabel refuses to overlook. "You're pregnant, and he's just wasting his life away. I thought that you would've been a woman that would've helped keep him on a good path, but it seems like you're right beside him as he continues on the wrong road." Making the best decision she’s ever made, leaving Henry behind. With a fresh start and a new outlook on life, Jesabel is feeling better than ever, ready for whatever life brings her way. "I was happy with where I currently was in life and I was thankful for everything that I had, but sometimes, I often wondered what else was out there for me."

I was telling you about my past, my fears, and everything else. And I really thought you'd protect me like you said, but you didn't. You just hurt me like..."
I'm not well-versed on this author's catalog, but this book made for a very interesting read. It almost read like a Lifetime movie. This was a contemporary romance read with a splash of drama.
